    I applied online. I interviewed at Spencer Ogden.

    Interview

    Applied for one job, was called about a different job. Received a follow up phone call where they discussed other candidates I may know? Then they never called back. I'd use the word unprofessional and disorganized.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Spencer Ogden (Houston, TX) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Short phone interview discussing what I know about recruiting. Invited for a in person interview where I met with the internal recruiter then the head of the perm team. Then invited to meet with the team I would be placed on. All asked the same questions "why do you want to be a recruiter" "why recruitment" "why" be ready to explain yourself and really sell them on the fact that you want to be there for a long time career. They have retention issues so they only hire people who can convince them they won't leave.

    Consultant/Recruiter Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Spencer Ogden (Denver, CO) in December 2016.

    Interview

    It's pretty amazing that one can do several interviews, spend numerous hours in conversations in total, all way up through finals, and then not hear anything back from this company.

    As a basic professional courtesy across any industry sector, it seems fairly standard to relay feedback (good, bad or ugly) within an expected time frame and not just go radio silent.

    If this is a benchmark on how they treat counter-parties in general, I would warrant caution to all potential clients, candidates, or recruiters considering them as an employer. Just my two cents.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Spencer Ogden (Houston, TX) in August 2016.

    Interview

    It was a phone interview with an HR employee then two in person interviews. I spoke with two girls that were a part of the HR team. They were very nice and welcoming. Afterwards, I spoke with a couple of the team managers that they have and a director. I was able to meet a lot of different people at the office, because it is a very open floor and you can see everyone that works there.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Spencer Ogden (Houston, TX) in June 2016.

    Interview

    The process took a couple of days. The recruiter contacted me about a brief phone call, then we set up an in person interview. The interview lasted about 2 hours. The recruiter told me they would probably want me to come back the next day and that she would be in contact with me by the end of the day, as the role was supposed to start the following Monday. After not hearing back, I reached out to the recruiter and never heard back.
